Default New Brother Dream Machine 2 (XV8550D) price.

Lots of hype about the new Dream Machine. Does anyone know the price?

I looked at it last year at a dealer in Macon Georgia and it was $8,500 cash....more if you financed it.....and that was the 1st one, no telling how much this one is.

probably around 12k I would guess plus or minus depending on what area you live in. My dealer wanted 9k with trade in and I paid about 7k for my machine so I said no because it really wasn't a deal. Probably about 9-10k if you have a trade in or want to get a class model.

Wow, that is one expensive machine. I thought I was crazy back in the 1990 buying my Bernina 1530 for $1,000!

yes, I agree. I think "sewing machines" are way overpriced, but then what isn't. A friend once mentioned that her hubby who is a computer tech said the price of the computerized s/m is extremely inflated. But is it because we want these machines to do so much.....interesting to see how far this technology goes....

I know. I bought a 180 in 98 for something like $3,000 and thought that was a fortune. With the price of new machines, I think I'll just keep sewing on the 180.

I got the Brother Simplicity 885-V31/V32/V33 back in April, 2016. It cost $800 and some dollars for it. I love it. It has the little things that my other machines do not have and it has the embroidery thing (which I haven't even tried out yet. I have free classes and have been busy learning it on my own. Seems when I sit down and want to learn it, I can do it much better on my own and then it sticks in the brain. I can't see all the stuff it has - I bet that one is about $1,500 if not more. To me it is a status symbol and I can use the White machine my husband gave me - it was used and it was for our first wedding anniversary, 1961! Still works, just a little on the slow side, but I wouldn't get rid of it for anything in the world. I figure if it goes forward and backward, I am fine. I just hit the jackpot when I found out, it automatically cuts the thread, it leaves the needle in the fabric when you stop, so I don't lose anything. What else do I need. I haven't even tried the embroiderererer yet! I can embroider by hand just fine, but it came with the thread cutter and the needle in the fabric. It was given to me by my aunt. I never could have afforded it. I love it, but I am so busy with the quilts that I just haven't had time for anything else. I don't sew clothes or anything, have no desire to, but I'd be lost without my Brother (to coin a phrase)!!!!! Edie
